THE impact of the closure of Cantilever Bridge for one day was worrying.

Roads were gridlocked and the town was badly affected.

So what will happen when work starts (if it ever starts) on the swing bridges?

The road network simply cannot cope.

If there was a closure of one of the bridges for weeks, forget about getting across the canal.

Yet the repair work shows they need maintaining.

The blame sits at Peel’s door.

Although I have little faith they will care.
